Behind the scenes of the Pirelli 2013 Calendar | Photographer: Steve Mccurry

IT'S the world's most famous calendar - coveted, exclusive and not for sale. But the 2013 edition has one glaring difference.

There's zero nudity.

Normally the Pirelli Calendar features models in various stages of undress, but the chosen photographer elected to shoot the 2013 has elected to keep the clothes on.

Steve McCurry is well-known as a documentary photojournalist - famed for a 1984 National Geographic cover of a young Afghan woman - and for the Pirelli Calendar commission, he took the models to the streets of Brazil.

 

The calendar features models Karlie Kloss, Summer Rayne, Isabeli Fontana, Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, Liya Kibede, Kyleigh Kuhn and a heavily pregnant Adriana Lima.

This year’s models were chosen specifically for their extensive charity work and it was thought that nudity might "dilute the message", casting director Jennifer Starr explains.

Victoria's Secret stunner Lima, 31, is the first model to pose pregnant for the famous calendar in its nearly 50 years existence.

Car poolers | Photographer: Alejandro Cartagena

Car poolers | Photographer: Alejandro Cartagena | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Car poolers is a project that continues my visual research on how the suburbs impact the landscape, the city and its inhabitants. These workers going to work in this way speaks of the lack of urban planning in many cities around the world. I decided to pursue this project as it has many other social connotations such as working conditions, immigration, transportation issues, illegality, survival, routine, wealth and poverty.

I’ve been shooting car poolers for a year now and I still go back once or twice a month. I normally shoot from 7am to 9am when most people are going to work. I picked Monterrey’s highway 85 going southbound to one of the richest cities in Latin America, San Pedro.
I found a pedestrian overpass that looks over the cars coming out of a small tunnel. I stand there and “predict” which trucks might have people in the back and then jump to oversee that lane and wait for the truck to pass underneath and shoot." —Alejandro Cartagena

Alejandro Cartagena lives and works in Monterrey, Mexico. His projects employ landscape and portraiture as a means to examine social, urban and environmental issues. Cartagena’s work has been exhibited internationally and has been widely published in print media including Domus, Wallpaper, Le Monde, Newsweek, Stern, PDN and The New Yorker.
